Topic: Kyleen's Perplexing Pirate Piece of Eight

My daughter Kyleen, seven at the time, was riding along with us one beautiful evening here in Florida. Our family had been entertaining ourselves with various illusions and tricks all summer.

My daughter was wearing a copy of a Piece Of Eight. It had a hole drilled in it with a tied piece of thick cord looped through the hole and then looped through itself. It was firmly fastened and impossible to take off of the medallion (while around someones neck) without undoing the knot and taking the whole thing apart. My daughter reached up, pulled the Piece of Eight from her neck and handed it to me. The cord was still hanging around her neck. Everyone FREAKED OUT. We examined the coin, the cord, and my daughters neck. For Hours!!! No explanation.

We were,and still are completely stumped! Now if I could take that one on the road...........

So nobody noticed the tiny cotton thread tying the loop so it only appears as if the cord passes through the hole?

Ya must have been tired...
